My last post was about having patience to put in the necessary work to achieve your goals.
I had lunch with a group of friends today and during lunch one of the girls made the comment of “yesterday’s workout made me feel bad about myself last night.”
The irony in that comment is that it was exactly what I was thinking Friday night after having such a great workout on Thursday.
My conclusion is there will always be something that makes me question myself. Especially if I desire to grow as an individual. There will always be triumphs and trials. It is in the aftermath of the trials that I have the opportunity to experience true growth.
I’ve got two choices, I can sit back on my ego and whine a little or I can dig deep and realize that it makes me better and better. Do nothing or work on the skills that it takes to get better and better.
Today the workout left me feeling good simply because I finished it and got just a smidge better in the process. It is taking the time to settle down and realize that with each and every hurdle, I can jump it or walk around it. It truly doesn’t matter as long as I move forward.
